Children Under the Age of 18
The Company cares about the safety of children. Because the Service is not directed toward kids, children under 18 are not allowed to register with or use the Service. We do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If we discover that we have collected personal information from a child under 18, we will delete that information immediately.
Information We Collect
Upon registration with the Service (either as a rider, company or driver), a user profile is developed to further customize the userâ€™s experience. The current required data fields are:
- Zip Code
In addition, tracking information is collected as you navigate through our website (the â€œWebsiteâ€) or use the Service, including, but not limited to geographic areas. If you are traveling in a vehicle ordered via the Service, the driverâ€™s mobile phone will record your GPS coordinates. Most GPS enabled mobile devices can define oneâ€™s location to within 50 feet.
We also collect device type and unique identifier when you use our mobile application. We use this information for the sole purpose of providing you with the most up to date application and features.
As a rider, you may also choose to upload a photo while using the site or application. If you wish to do so, this may be viewable by the drivers who are picking you up so that they are able to verify your identity. You may remove it or update it at any time by logging into your account.
If you use our services through your mobile device, we will track your geo-location information so that we can set your pick up location, and drivers are able to find your pick-up location. We will not share this information with third parties for any purpose and will only use this information for the sole purpose of fulfilling your request. You may at any time no longer allow our application to use your location by turning this off at the device level.
If you wish to apply for a job on our site we will collect personal information such as your name, email address, phone number and additional information such as resume, gender, and your ethnicity. We use the information collected within this area of the site to determine your qualifications for the position in which you have applied and to contact you to set up an interview.
Our third party tracking utility partner employs a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored in a userâ€™s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customersâ€™ personal information.
How We Use Your Information
Our primary goal in collecting information is to provide you with an enhanced experience when using the Service. We use this information to closely monitor which features of the Service are used most, to allow you to view your trip history, view any promotions we may currently be running, rate trips, and to determine which features we need to focus on improving, including usage patterns and geographic locations to determine where we should offer or focus services, features and/or resources. We use the mobile information collected so that we are able to serve you the correct app version depending on your device type, for troubleshooting and in some cases marketing purposes.
The Company uses your Internet Protocol (IP) address to help diagnose problems with our computer server, and to administer the Website. Your IP address is used to help identify you, and to gather broad demographic data. Your IP address contains no personal information about you.
We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account.
Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we will send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email or telephone, in accordance with your wishes.
Targeted or Behavioral Advertising
Targeted advertising (also known as Behavioral Advertising) uses information collected on an individualâ€™s web browsing behavior such as the pages they have visited or the searches they have made. This information is then used to select which GET Transportation advertisement should be displayed to a particular individual on websites other than Get Transportation.com. For example, if you have shown a preference for hockey while visiting GETTransportTx.com, you may be served an advertisement from GETTransportTx.comÂ for hockey related programs when you visit a site other than GETTransportTx.com. The information collected is only linked to an anonymous cookie ID (alphanumeric number); it does not include any information that could be linked back to a particular person, such as their name, address or credit card number. The information used for targeted advertising either comes from GETTransportTx.com or through third party website publishers. If you would like to opt out of targeted advertising from GETTransportTx.com that occurs when visiting our third party advertising publishers, pleaseÂ http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp. Please note that this will opt you out of targeted ads from GETTransportTx.com and any other participating advertisers. If you opt out, you will continue to receive online advertising from GETTransportTx.com; however, these ads may not be as relevant to you.
